It this is a 4 gallon batch, OG will be around 1.040/1.045. Probably a lot lower than your target.
Peat malt flavor varies depending on how old the malt is. With fresh malt, 4 ozs in 5 gallons will give you a nice smoked flavor. Ever drink Stone Smoked Porter? 4 ozs fresh peated malt in 5 gallons will give you that much smoke. A lot of people will be turned off by more than that.
I also think 1 lb Honey malt is way too much. I'm not a fan of the malt, leaves the beer tasting way too sweet for me.
It is your beer, you are the one who will have to drink it. I think you are going to spend a lot of time making a beer that you will find difficult to drink. Good luck.
If you do end up making it, please post back with results. It will be interesting to find out how it turns out.
